The Chrysalis: Monarch School’s Center for the Arts
This year, we have launched an epicenter for our arts programming, The Chrysalis: Monarch School’s Center for the Arts in the Barrio Logan community. The Center provides dedicated performance, music, dance and visual arts spaces, to optimize and grow our successful Creative Youth Development programs. Our own home for the arts will enable Monarch to expand our arts programs to deeply engage not only students but families as well in utilizing the tools and resources of the arts to help imagine, create, and build the vibrant and successful life they all desire and deserve.
Watch our students' performance of
Peter Pan showcases students from Monarch teamed up with professional theatre artists from Imagine and Seaside Arts Center to create an original version of Peter Pan based on the beloved story by J.M. Barrie, and creative writing and reflection from Monarch students. Our show highlights themes of personal courage, adventure & imagination, and mental health & resilience. This show is family-friendly and complete with fighting pirates, magical fairies, and the child-like spirit in all of us.
